The free MAXReader
Opening project files without a MAXQDA license
Everyone can now view, search for, browse and “dig through” data using the MAXReader. However, data editing and applying codes is still only available to MAXQDA license holders.
What is the purpose of the Reader?
- Knowledge Management – All knowledge resources (e.g. in organizations) can be made available to specific target groups without manipulation of the data.
- Evaluation – Examiners are able to easily see and understand their student’s project data.
- Research Centers, Museums or Libraries – Data can be made accessible for viewing without giving any control away that might lead to changes in the original data.
- Teaching – Professors can view their student’s project data in order to comment on their work. Real project read-only files allow you to track and discuss distinct stages of the qualitative data analysis process.
- In Teamwork – Teams can track and discuss several stages and steps throughout the analytical process on un-editable files. You can then easily distribute these uneditable materials within a research institute.

- Understand different steps of the analysis
